Well it turns out that those seed we were spreading over our chia pets are pretty nutritious. They've also become the darling of the super food obsession. Chia seeds are rich in Omega-3, that's the good fat that stops inflammation and you can also get it from fish like salmon and mackerel.
I choose to eat these little seeds as "pudding". Once soaked in a liquid the chia seeds pretty much take on the consistency of tapioca.
I add a 4:1 ratio of almond milk to chia seeds and soak overnight, covered.

It's delish and makes a great snack. You're co-workers might look at you a little quizzically if you eat it at work (which I've experienced) but the taste and health benefits are worth it.
